“The rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.”
― John F. Kennedy
It’s been far too long…. I’ve just had a lot going on in my life! Please forgive me.. :-)
outside my house are getting tortured by Sandy! My beautiful trees better not fall down!!!
When it came time for the couple’s traditional first dance, Joe read prepared remarks explaining that instead of dancing together, they wanted to open the dance floor to their gay and lesbian friends who are still legally denied the right to marry.
This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn’t even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage. And yet the ovation that these people received while dancing to The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was like nothing I’ve ever heard at any wedding. If there were dry eyes, I didn’t see any.
Change is coming.
